Reviving Lollywood ?

  Few months back I've seen Chambaili which is directed by Ismail Jillani. Movie was all about patriotism and they released it when election campaign was going in throughout the country. They've showed modern day Pakistan filled with corruption and to change this country we have to change ourselves that is the main message of the movie. I remember people giving standing ovation when Moosa gives his motivational speech in the movie. Recently it has been selected by Amnesty International for their film festival 2013.

 Then I've watched Josh which is written & directed by Iram Parveen Bila. Another great movie with great performance by Aamina Sheikh.The movie is all about unity & hope. Josh world premiered at the 2012 Mumbai International Film Festival and was one of the Top 15 Recommended Films at IFFI Goa's Film Bazaar Viewing Room after winning the 2012 Women In Film Award

   Recently I've seen Main Hoon Shahid Afridi or MHSA at atrium cinemas. The movie is all about passion for cricket if you are a cricket fan you should watch this movie. Humayun Saeed who played role of Akbar is a coach of Sialkot Shaheens who wants his under 19 cricket team to win cricket cup but his dark past  keeps coming his way to haunt him and stop him which also includes Mahnoor Baloch. Overall its a great effort audience were screaming, clapping like they are at the stadium. Shahid Afridi and Ayesha Omar has special appearance in this movie.

   Still we are waiting for Zinda Bhaag, Waar & Jami's Moor. Waar is now delayed till October, Zinda Bhaag will be releasing this week on 20th September and its also been nominated for Oscar consideration from Pakistan. Moor has been written, directed by Jami, music has been done by Strings. Its a tragic story a family pulled apart through corruption and circumstances out of their control. We have Alhamdulillah so much talent in this country and finally some people from private production houses have taken steps to make good movies on different topics no more Shaan with his false mostouche playing same role again and again in different movies and here is my tweet after watching all 3 movies Chambaili, Josh & MHSA.
